Whereas other Christianity-meets-Buddhism books stress ideology and the intellect, this one emphasizes daily acts of practice. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) In this illuminating and insightful guide, Kim Boykin offers Christians a way to incorporate Zen practices into their lives without compromising their beliefs and faith. Zen for Christians assumes curiosity but no real knowledge as it walks readers through specific concepts of Zen philosophy -- including suffering, attachment, and enlightenment -- and explains each in a simple but lively way. Sections between chapters gently demonstrate Zen meditation practices, explaining the basics in a clear, engaging manner. Placing Buddhist and Christian teachings side by side helps readers not only understand Zen but also shows their compatibility. Drawing on Dr. Boykin's own personal search through Buddhism and Christianity as well as her background in theological studies, this thought-provoking work illustrates how Zen practice can be particularly useful for Christians who want to enrich their faith by incorporating contemplative practices.
